Carboxytherapy - gas bubble in the bloodstream?

is carboxytherapy safe? It has been used in many countries with good results, but what are the risks of embolism or a gas bubble (in this case CO2) in the blood stream or vein?

Thanks for your query. Carboxytherapy is a safe and effective treatment with proven results. It is injected directly into the blood stream and even if it nicks a blood vessel it will not cause embolism at such low dose and pressure so it is quite safe. Hope it helps.
